Citizenship Ceremonies

Under the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002, all applicants aged 18 years or over, who are accepted for naturalisation as British Citizens are required to take part in a Citizenship Ceremony.

During the ceremony you will be required to take an oath or affirmation and pledge your allegiance to the Sovereign.

When you receive your invitation letter from the Home Office you should contact the register office as soon as possible to make arrangements to attend a ceremony. On the day of the ceremony you must bring a form of identification, such as a passport or driving licence, along with your invitation letter.

Citizenship Ceremonies are held in the Cefn Bryn Room at the Civic Centre and are usually held once a month. The ceremony will be led by the Superintendent Registrar and local dignitaries are usually in attendance to welcome you as a new citizen. You will be presented with your certificate and a small gift to commemorate the occasion. You will have the opportunity to have your photograph taken with the dignitaries by a professional photographer. Following the ceremony you will be able to have refreshments and meet other new citizens.

Individual Citizenship Ceremonies

If you are unable to attend a group ceremony or would like to have your own personal Citizenship Ceremony, this can be arranged for an additional fee. Please contact us for more information.
